I agree with Larkin that NF glass isn't a match for Zeiss, Swarovski and S&B, but it's still pretty good. I have no experience with the scopes or reticles so you mention, but I got an NXS in 5.5-22×56 for my .300 WM T3 build. I have the MOAR-T reticle, which is illuminated. The turrets are good, with positive clicks and 1/4 and you get what you dial every time.
I had my T3 action faced off and an LRI recoil lug fitted with a Bartlein barrel and an integrated muzzle brake. I bedded it in a McMillan A3 and I shoot 208 A-Max at just over .5 MOA most days.
My chamber was cut for 3.5″ OAL, so the loaded rounds don't fit in the mag and have to be single loaded, which is no problem. I went for 3.5″ as that is the max length where chambered rounds can be extracted without the end of the bullet head snagging the front end of the ejection port with the bolt fully back. Any longer and you would need to remove the bolt to extract a loaded round.
Happy to offer any other advice from my experience if it would help.
Look at Long Rifles Inc for details of the recoil lugs (and other top quality work).
